They have performed around the world for royalty and senior government alike, including the Queen, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. They have also performed at the Commonwealth Games and the Highland Games.
Staged in colourful authentic costumes, this exciting show encompasses a wide range of musical styles to present a spectacle of rich African culture.
